Today’s trend for guest books is anything BUT the traditional guest ledger sign in book that our parents had on their wedding day. The guest sign in experience is a chance for you to get creative as a couple and share a little of your personality with your guests. As a wedding planner (in my past life) I saw so many unique and memorable guest “book” displays. Here are some of my favorite ideas paired with guest book printable signs from my Etsy Shop that can be purchased & printed instantly and are versatile enough to work for a variety of displays.
1. For the Globe Trotter – Sign a Globe

I did a photo guest book for my own wedding so you know it had to make the list! It is such a fun keepsake and snapping a polaroid gets guests laughing and feeling silly. Check out this Gold faux foil sign that works great for photo guest books. Purchase in my Etsy Shop here.
4. Signing a Surfboard (or other memorable item)

Want to really wow your guests and create a cool art feature for your newlywed nest? Try incorporating your hobbies and interests by having guests sign something that is important to you as a couple. Whether it’s a surfboard, old comic book or vinyl record you can turn your guest sign-in into to a beautiful keepsake. Try using my Black Slant “Kindly Sign” printable to accompany this sort of display. This can be downloaded instantly and customized with your unique message in a matter of minutes. Check it out here.
5. The Family Bible

Connect with those you love in the most personal and beautiful way. Purchase a family Bible and ask guests to highlight their favorite verse or some special words they think will speak to you as a new couple and ask them to sign their names in the margin. Our elegant Gold Serene Guest Book sign works perfect for this lovely guest sign-in. Purchase and personalize this sign here.
